MORE INFOS / RIDER





"Cup", Body & Sound brought to Saturation...

...NW deploys during 12 minutes all his buccal energy in a plastic cup, equipped with a contact microphone (Schertler©) connected to different distortion effects.

WEBSITE : http://nwwn.tk



Six chronological steps are required to adequately fulfil the aim intended in this ritual:

- Listening : The cup on the heart, heartbeats accelerating along the way.
- Unveiling : Appetizer for the senses, the discovery of the object.
- Wandering : Space exploration.
- Falling : Fatigue expected.
- Playing : Like a dog with a ball.
- Ending : Power cut.

The playground is set on the floor, facing the sound system.
The “Wandering” phase aims at emphasizing the space in order to feel the acoustic characteristics of the place.
This is why it is advised that the audience is placed around NW.
It is also important to specify that the sound system should be of good quality and will face demanding performances in terms of dynamics.


Review by N.Raven :
"NW’s Cup was a noise piece which delivered a delicious mix of screeching sounds and boundless, childlike energy. NW, a male performer, knelt before a mixing desk. Silently, and with a beaming smile upon his face, he dedicated the time to ‘cheers’ every single member of the audience with his plastic cup which came complete with attached contact mic. As he poured water into the cup, sounds of the glugging liquid were projected around the space via his connected speakers – a simple action transformed into an audio event. As the performer drank from a water bottle, he held the cup to his chest; the sounds of the liquid moving downwards along his internal digestive tract was heard around the space, the internal now becoming external. Because he was topless, and I was sitting behind him and viewing his back, I was able to witness the inner workings of his body; lungs, diaphragm, muscles, expanding and contracting as he thrashed about on his knees. As the energy built, NW began to breathlessly moan into the cup. The audio was edited, extended and exaggerated within the space, delivering a deeply melancholic sound which eerily lingered in my mind. As the sound grew to an almost unbearable level, the performer stood up and began to rock back and forth, forcing breath into the cup, skin sweating, eyes bulging, energy expelling from his every pore. As he fell to the floor, screams of exhaustion could be heard faintly in the background of this audio symphony. For me, the joy of this performance came from its apparent simplicity; one man and his cup. The use of silence and stillness at the start of the performance was contrasted well by the extreme energy and high intensity of the enveloping soundscape. I was extremely pleased to see the performer firmly position his own body at the heart of his performance, as all too often noise artists hide behind their various technologies. Here, technology and the body came together in order to produce a well-crafted performative piece with a strong dramatic curve."

My Pot/Box principal idea is : the blindness.
I'm in good way to have Both eyes Glaucoma...
So for this shared moment, i will Create a condition of poor visual perception.
In order to feel the present with the concrete contact of the body into space.

Wireless Bruitiste Action.
For this new live project, called RIR1009,
the purpose is to developed manipulation of FeedBack,
buccal basics, psychoacoustic and language sharing.
An headset-mic and contact-mic,
plugged into few effect pedals,
connected into a wireless system,
wear with a belt to be free to move like i need.
Discovering with the audience the gig place.
With my headlamp i’m focusing
the meaning of every tiny actions.
Throughout my trip, i reveal my
interest about sound and my proper emotions and
i communicate with the audience about what is going on «now»,
at this very precise moment called «the present».

- the main mixer need to have 1 XLR empty channels to plug the XLR from my DI,
- I perform everywhere into the venue, never fix on stage,
